With every decade, there comes a technology that revolutionizes and rules the whole decade. And with that in mind, Google’s new head Sundar Pichai is taking steps to make Google focused on the technology of the decade - Artificial intelligence. Google has kept AI at the heart of each of its products, whether it is an established one or is introduced recently during the I/O 2016 conference.
When Larry Page and Sergey Brin founded Google 17 years ago, they had no clue that one day their company will have such a great influence in people’s lives; Google is almost ubiquitous today. Back then, there were only 300 million people online, connecting through desktop computers. And today, that number has crossed 3 billion, a majority of which are using mobile devices to get information, stay in touch, get from point A to point B, and organize their day. With Google’s mission - to organize the world’s information and make it accessible universally - mobile devices have become the remote control of our daily lives.
The announcements that were done in Google I/O 2016 conference offered an opportunity to developers to get a glimpse of the newborn babies of one of the favorite darlings of Silicon Valley. Here are some important announcements, which may soon become a part of our day to day lives.
